On June 29, 2017, China’s Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT) issued a draft list of 12 consumer products that would be required to comply with hazardous substance restrictions under the country’s RoHS2 law, which is the same list of substances included under the European Union’s RoHS Directive. Feedback will be accepted until July 28.
Like EU RoHS, some applications are exempt from the substance restrictions, and non-listed products that contain certain hazardous substances exceeding the limits, can still be sold in China provided that they are marked according to regulations.
A brief article in ChemicalWatch’s AsiaHub lists the 12 types of products proposed to be included.
